One eventful evening and twelve years of silence later, Solomon Haynes shows up again on Grace Myles’s doorstep. Once his good looks had made her giddy, and his charisma had coerced her out of her shell. Just one look and Grace knows his effect on her is still the same. She had given him her heart the first time and something more. That had been a mistake. She’d be a fool to fall for him a second time. With a battle raging between her heart and mind, she fights to resist his allure and his promises that the second time around can be different. Private problems and a secret sin had kept him from coming back to her twelve years ago. With the benefit of time and conversion, Solomon acknowledges that he made a gross mistake. Forgiveness, Grace’s forgiveness, is what he craves, and just one opportunity to win her love for keeps this time. And when he finds out that he left more than Grace behind on that final night twelve years before, he is even more determined to win her heart and to form a home and a family with her. God threw his sins into the depths of the sea; but man dredged them up, bringing his past into the present. When the rumors start flying and an old female friend seeks refuge with him, Solomon is hard pressed to convince Grace that he hasn’t reverted to his old ways. But with the persistence and tenacity of those determined to keep him and Grace apart and those who want his past to seem like his present, it appears that he’s fighting a losing battle for her trust and love. Can he overcome the lies that his enemies are spreading and convince Grace that she can take a chance on him? Failure isn’t an option because it would mean losing the love of his life and his little girl.
